It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Well, this is my first post since the Great Blogger Meltdown last Thursday, but so far everything seems to be working fine -- so I guess we're back in business. I wasn't really too upset about the down time since it spurred me into finishing a couple of books last week. Here's my list:
  • Finished last week:

    A Shilling for Candles by Josephine Tey

    Art and Madness by Anne Roiphe

  • Reading this week:

    Tassy Morgan's Bluff by Jim Stinson, and Mr. Chartwell by Rebecca Hunt. These are both Early Reviewer books from Library Thing (one was delivered several months late), so I'm anxious to get them read and reviewed as quickly as possible.

  • Next up:

    I've managed to amass a whole pile of ARCs that need attending to, and I might start with John Hart's new thriller Iron House (due to be released in July). Also, I want to read another book for the Once Upon a Time Challenge -- probably another one of Edward Eager's wonderful vintage fantasies for young readers. And I've got another pile of books I've read in the last couple of months but haven't reviewed yet -- will try to get to that task this week too, if Blogger doesn't throw me any curves!

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. If you want to let the world know what books you're going to be reading this week, head on over to her blog and leave your link. It's also a great way to discover new books and new blogs.


  1. These are all new to me but I love the Mr. Chartwell cover :) Have a great reading week!

  2. I haven't heard of these JohnH looks interesting. And Art and Madness, will have to look that one up.

  3. Art and Madness and Tassy Morgan's Bluff are on my wish list.



  4. I haven't tried John Hart's work, but several people at a recent event I attended were raving over it.

  5. Have a great reading week. I keep meaning to pick up Mr. Chartwell, but haven't gotten around to it yet.

  6. Ahhhh yes, the great Blogger melt down of 2011.... I remember it well :)

    Glad things are working smoothly again and your books look good!

  7. I'm really curious about Mr. Chartwell. Hope you enjoy it!

    Have a great week!

  8. Art and Madness has an intriguing title and Tassy Morgan's Bluff has a gorgeous vivid cover. So you have an interesting line-up yourself. =)


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
